Wanna know a secret? When Scholl launched the Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File a year or two ago, I was so intrigued that I kept watching Youtube video on how to use it. It’s therapeudic 😛 . The most interesting video I watched is from BeautyQQ. That little machine worked so well on her and her mum! Then last year, Scholl released a Limited Edition Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File in Pink for Breast Cancer Awareness Month, I screamed. Pink is my favourite colour 🙂
Lazada Malaysia had a super-worthy-over-the-roof promotion whereas you only paid RM189 for Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File AND Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drinks (50ml x 16). Mind you both of these already cost RM310.10 as normal price. My parcel reached me more than a week delay thus the late posting of this review 🙁 . I am so sorry about that but do keep an eye on Lazada website. Who know they might change the pricing again for Hari Raya Promotion or any other promotion? Which I foresee they *might* 🙂 . Don’t quote me 😛
The packaging was easy to rip off, which was to my surprise and I was able to get the foot file out of the shell without any tugging war. It is a very simple hand-held device with just two item in it. The foot file itself and a plastic cover for the roller head. The overall package comes with the Electronic Foot File, a Diamond Crystals Extra Coarse Roller Head, a Cover, and four AA batteries.
Operating the Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File is as easy as just a turn of the ON and OFF dial. As simple as that! No rocket science.
The roller head now are replaced with Diamond Crystals Extra Coarse. Although “extra coarse” sounds intimidating and painful, however it is not the case. It feels very comfortable on the feet actually. Before using the device, you are advised to clean both your feet and dry them up well. The device only works on hard skin on the feet therefore it can only be used on dry feet. Never ever try using it on wet feet. Work on one area at a time with not more than 3-4 seconds per area. If you keep working on the same area for a long time, you may risk having redness on your feet. So go back and forth if you needed to. You should not feel any discomfort or irritation at all. If you do, just stop using 😀 . There will be white powdery residue from the filing so do this in the open environment ya.
Lo and behold! Miss Feet aka my feet makes an appearance for the first time (I think) in this blog 😛 . Look away if you feel ticklish or having goosebumps lol.
I do not have hard skin on my feet but my feet do tend to get very dry and flaky with the hot weather.
As I am always on high heels, cracked heels is unavoidable. It gets worse with the dry weather but still, no hard skin formation thank God. My cracked heels situation is not the worse case scenario so it took me less than a minute to smooth them out. I was not able to smooth the lines away because like I said, the skin on my feet is quite thin so I do not want to risk getting my feet irritated by running the device repeatedly on the area. Once I was satisfied with the result, I stopped 😀 . I clean the foot file, wash the roller head, wash my feet and apply some foot cream. Voila! I am all done.
Are you still with me after the nasty feet photos? Yes? Good 😀
It seems weird to see that Scholl Velvet Smooth Express Pedi Foot File had a bundle with Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drinks but it is also good as I get to try this version of collagen drink. I always believe and mentioned so many times before that besides nourishing our skin from the outside with topical skincare, we also need to take care of our skin from within. Regardless which type of product you choose, additional step to nourish our skin from the within is better than nothing.
The Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drinks comes in a pack of 16 bottles. That is a whole month of supply as you only need to take one bottle every two days, before breakfast or bedtime. I like my collagen drink before bedtime as morning I would be on my usual coffee 😀 .
I remember how collagen drink used to taste fishy and not palatable at all. With the improvement year by year, collagen drink actually taste so much better now. Just like a fruit juice. This Kinohimitsu Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink is made of collagen, perilla seed extract, silk protein, soy isoflavone, and added with fruity condensed juice of apple, lemon and lychee. It is also far less sweet than every other collagen drink I have tried. I like the taste of this one better. It does not make me feel thirsty after one bottle. Best of all? No nasty fishy taste on the tongue.
This particular Collagen Diamond 5300 Drink is specifically for mature skin. That’s my skin we are talking about. It is meant to restore youthfulness, resilience and radiance as Collagen Peptide has a shorter molecular structure and easily absorbed by our skin. On a long run, it also tighten skin pore and reduce fine lines. As you may or may not know, collagen drink also strengthens our hair and nails too.
